Vintage Mirror Makeover

So I decided to keep at least one of the mirrors I found yesterday and paint out one for now. I got busy last night after I put the boys down and busted out my Annie Sloan and CeCe Caldwell paints. Can I tell yahoo much I LOVE these paints y'all!
Before
After! I painted and slightly distressed it in areas so that the original gold would show thru. I used three different colors on this piece.
Painting it really made all of its intricate details pop out.


I just love its old warn chippy feel! Don't worry about the cracks. This piece is solid! The cracks just add more charm to the piece.

I am loving how it turned out and am now thinking the one I am keeping just may get painted as well!

Thanx for stopping by and I hope your Wednesday is going well!:)

  9. I love a good mirror makeover, they are some of my favorites! I am going to feature this tomorrow at my party.

    Also, you mentioned Cece Caldwell paints. I am taking a class using the paints next week from our Western Distributor. I am really excited. I am seriously considering becoming a retailer in my area, there is no one selling these yet and I love everything I am reading and hearing about the paint. Can you tell me any pros and cons you have with it vs. Annie Sloane Chalk Paint?
